ULYSSES S. GRANT
The Republican presidential candidate tells recipient an error can probably be corrected by Johnson's Secretary of War.
Autograph Note Signed: "U.S. Grant/Genl", 2p, 3½x2¼ card, front and verso. No place, but probably Washington, 1868 September 17 (Date written in another hand). In full: "It will be necessary to see Gen. Howard or the Sec. of War on the business named. The latter alone, if any one, can correct the mistake." Four months before writing this note, at the Republican National Convention held in Crosby's Opera House in Chicago, May 20-21, 1868, General of the Army ULYSSES S. GRANT was unanimously nominated for President on the first ballot. On November 3, 1868, he defeated Democrat Horatio Seymour 3.0 million to 2.7 million popular votes, 214-80 electoral votes, 26-eight states. At the time of this note, General Oliver O. Howard was Commissioner of the Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen, and Abandoned Lands, commonly called the Freedmen's Bureau. The Secretary of War was John M. Schofield, who had succeeded Edwin M. Stanton four months earlier after President Johnson was acquitted in his impeachment trial. Erased, light pencil notations on front and verso at blank margins. Fine condition.
